The GEAR Project

What are you doing to prepare your child for a STEM career? Let’s bring a robot into your home.

The GEAR Program is a youth robotics program for 10 York City 6th-9th grade students who will participate in weekly workshops on Tuesdays from 5:30PM-7:30PM beginning on November 10, 2020, and ending in June 2021. This non-competitive program provides hands-on lessons with exposure to coding and engineering by using robots as an educational tool.

This is the first program of its kind in York City. The GEAR Project is about getting educational robots into the homes of our underserved community who needs it the most. When other robotics programs end, students go home empty-handed. The GEAR Project solves that problem. When our program ends, our students keep their robots. By doing this, not only are we placing technology into the community, but our students can continue with self-learning and also share their knowledge with siblings, family, and others within the community.

Food and drinks are provided at the end of each workshop.
